Construction That Makes the Difference
We have developed a sincere commitment to quality and to hand-crafting our furniture with the best techniques known to the furniture industry today. Join us as we explore some of the features in our construction that make Canal Dover Furniture stand out in a crowd.
Sealed Table Edges & Table Corner Braces
All table edges are sealed with a special sealer to keep the joints on the table top fitting tightly.
Leg tables have interlocking corner blocks fastened by screws. This gives a significant amount of added durability.
Catalyzed Conversion Varnish
We finish off our furniture with a 7-step catalyzed varnish finish. Unlike other manufacturers, we use a top of the line conversion varnish with excellent resistance to water, scratching, common household spills, alcohol, yellowing and marring. Our catalyzed varnishes are the toughest and most durable finishes available in the furniture industry today.
Mortise and Tenon Joinery
Not popular in factory furniture, the mortise and tenon joinery used in our furniture achieves lasting results. This method creates a very strong joint and prevents the joint from coming loose.
Dovetailed Bed Rail Slats
Solid wood slats are dovetailed to ensure the strongest joint possible.
Every piece of furniture is solid wood. We don't cut any corners or sacrifice an ounce of quality. We guarantee your furniture will stand the test of time.
Dovetailed Drawers and Full Extension, Ball-Bearing Drawer Slides
Although timely, the classic technique of dovetailing ensures the strongest joint possible. Look at any of the four dovetailed corners and you can clearly see, these drawers were made to resist the daily pulling forces applied to the drawer front. Once our craftsman pushes these joints together, nothing short of breakage will pull this drawer apart.
A full extension slide creates a smooth glide for easy drawer access.
Cabinet Backs Screwed On
Flush mounted wood cabinet backs are fastened by screws.
Floating Panel in Doors
Raised panel doors have "spacing balls" in the frame. This allows for natural expansion and contraction and prevents cracks and rattling.
